It was the year 1903. A person was charged theft of some articles, and brought to the court of the magistrate Dhulia. The acused told that Sai Baba had given those articles.Therefore, summons were issued to Sai Baba, by the magistrate to appear in the court to give evidence. On a suggestion from Nana Chandorkar, all the devotees prepared to appeal to the magistrate , stating that Sai Baba was a great divine personality and all of them regarded him as a God and it was not proper to ask such a Mahatma to appear in the court. In case the court felt that the evidence of Sai Baba was very essential, then it could send a commissioner to Shirdi to record the evidence of Sai Baba . The court accepted the plea of the devotees and sent Nana Joshi , who was the assistant collector and first class magistrate to Shirdi to record the evidence of Sai Baba. In Shirdi no one knew that Nana Joshi was coming.
But Baba Knew about this and made arrangements before Dwarkamai by arranging tables and chairs. Making it appear like a courtroom. From the questions put by the court commissioner and the answers given by Sai Baba, We glean some facts about Baba. The Questions and answers are as follows :
Commissioner : Your name ?
Sai Baba : All call me by the name of Sai Baba
Commissioner : Your father's name
Sai Baba : Your Guru's name

The piece of cloth tied round his head was very rarely changed and never washed. When He decided to change his Kufni he sent for the tailor and saifd :'' Get me a Kufni ". When it was given to HIm he always paid the tailor more than its worth. Left to himself Baba spoke Very little mostly he was calm and quiet speaking only when absolutely necessary. He never laughed loudly but smile quitely. Most of the time he sat with his eyes closed. When a devotee approached him for darshan he glanced at him. Sometimes He did mot even do that. He was always playful in the presence of children. He never sat leaning against the wall in the mosque. even when he sat with his legs outstretched he always sat a few feet ways from the wall. He did not lie down during the day. He seldom visited any temple in Shirdi.
